DJ Allison Kinney

A Brooklyn resident hailing from Virginia, DJ Allison Kinney got her start in the music business by majoring in classical singing and hosting several local radio shows at her alma mater, James Madison University. Allison grew up with diverse musical tastes, particularly influenced by her parents' recording studio Ravensworth Studios, resulting in one of her greatest assets: knowing how to fuse multiple genres into one performance to please all audiences.

During her years as a one-woman DJ and emcee, she has had high- energy performances everywhere from Las Vegas to The Plaza Hotel in New York City. The wedding industry bible, The Knot, has consistently featured her at their annual gala hosted at the New York Public Library, and she is fortunate enough to be one of their recommended artists. In addition to her full-time work in the wedding and private event circuit, she has held multiple popular club residencies in NYC. She has been featured at high-profile venues such as Best Buy Theater, Brooklyn Bowl, Soho House, the W Hotel, and many more venues. Allison has also worked with NBC and the Today Show for several events, including at the X Factor premiere party. In addition to being a featured act, Allison has had the opportunity to open for several big artists, including Grammy winner Ciara, Grammy-nominee Audien, The Chainsmokers, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin Van Buuren, indie dance duo The Knocks, and more. Currently, she is spinning at multiple events for SiriusXM radio.

From weddings to fashion events to private dance parties, Allison knows how to get people on the dance floor, and recognizes DJing as an art form that can transform any event into a memorable experience. Recent non-wedding events include the Brooklyn Kindergarten Society and the Frick Collection’s annual Young Fellows Ball in partnership with Caroline Herrera.

Hey Allison!

 

Ewa and I just wanted to thank you again for making our wedding such a great time! Right from the moment we arrived at the reception, we knew we were in good hands. We are still talking about how fun it was and how we wish it never ended-- it went by so quick, and when you started to mix it up, it was just partaay time! The feet just had to move. All our family and friends loved the music selection. Ewa and I are so grateful to have met you, and we couldn't have been happier with the way things turned out. We were glad you were a part of it. Go Dukes! :)

 

Love,

Ewa and Eric
